It’s been an exciting year for the ParentingAces website, but the absolute highlight has to be its award of media credentials at the 2013 US Open. In order to maximize the experience, ParentingAces asked Holabird Sports to partner on a contest during the two weeks of our Home Slam. The two tennis-loving businesses wanted to do something fun for their supporters, so they came up with the idea of using social media to engage tennis fans. After brainstorming a bit, the What’s in YOUR Bag video contest was born!
Here’s how it works:
- Using Instagram, record a 15-second Bag Check video (Watch an example video.)
- Post it using hashtags #usopenaces and #
- Share the video to Twitter using hashtags #usopenaces and #
All video submissions will be entered into the drawing for the Grand Prize, a Wilson US Open tennis bag and Wilson tennis racquet of your choice, courtesy of Holabird.
The contest runs Monday, August 26, 2013 – Monday, September 9, 2013. The deadline for video submissions is September 9, 2013, 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time. The winner will be announced on Monday, September 16, 2013.
If you have the chance to spend time at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center over the next two weeks, be sure to look for the ParentingAces ladies, Lisa Stone and Melanie Rubin, and share your story with them. And enjoy the Open – it’s going to be another great one!
